Situated in the Aldinga Arts Eco-Village, we offer an eco-experience, retro style. Passive solar design, with your own veggie garden, it has 3 large bedrooms, with easy access to Port Willunga Beach, McLaren Vale wineries and a halfway stop to KI!

The space

Eco-experience, retro style. Sounds incompatible? Northerly aspect, high thermal mass and passive solar design, the shack needs no heating or cooling, other than fans and cross breezes. 3 large bedrooms, one queen, one double and the third bedroom with one single bed. Expansive living area opening out into an outdoor entertaining area overlooking your own vegetable garden, all decorated in mid-century style. A fantastic example of 'Up Cycling'.

Guest access

While here, guests can share in the communal orchards of the village, including plums, peaches, nectarines, pears, apples, guavas, figs, almonds, pomegranates, and so much more. Guests are welcome to enjoy walking around the Village where walking, children and bicycles have priority over cars.
I can arrange for the hire of bicycles and kayaks, which will be delivered to your beach of choice.

Interaction with guests

I live close by in the Village and am easily contactable if need be.

Other things to note

We are now coming into the Christmas season. Every Friday from 3.30-5.30, freshly picked veggies from our organic farm are sold in the village car park. Fridays after 5 is on every Friday evening from 5-9 until April with markets, live music and pop up food vans. Why not stay close to the beach and wineries and let he train take you directly into the centre of the city if you need to go into Adelaide.

In true retro style, the Kaz's Retro Retreat includes a retro record player and guests are encouraged to request the type of vinyl they would like to spin.

We had a great short break staying at Kaz's Retro Retreat. We loved the decor and made good use of the record player for some swinging and soulful tunes. It was clean, well-equipped and convenient. A short walk to the old Aldinga shops, a short run to the beach and McLaren Vale and an easy drive to from the airport and to the city. Thanks Karen & Lou for a great holiday.

Karen's place was tidy and well stocked. Close to shops and a little pizza place and cafes. Very close to all the wineries and some great places to eat. Would definitely stay again. Thanks Karen!

We enjoyed our stay in Karen's house especially having 2 bathrooms. The house was spotlessly clean and within walking distance of the shops.

Beautifully decorated, clean & comfy home away from home. Set in the quiet Eco-village & only a short drive to some magnificent beaches! This is the place to stay while you're exploring the south of South Australia!

This is a really great place to relax and enjoy ... a stones throw from McLaren Vale, and from the coast. I highly recommend this house, it is very comfortable, filled with gorgeous furniture and colourful rugs!

Response from Karen:
Thanks for your recommendation Sian and I am so glad you loved the furniture and the rugs.

I am from South Australia (I am an environmental law professor) and my partner Lou runs a local retro shop, Lou's Shack. We love music and art and our local wineries. I do a lot of travel with work and we like a more low key type of accommodation in less touristy localities, where we can explore the city by bicycle and indulge in local food and wine. Our favourite destination in NYC and we were lucky to spend part of last winter in Spain.
